A internet ficou surtada ontem após a divulgação da decisão de colocar Eli Manning no banco – e com razão. Nós ainda não conseguimos entender e nem engolir isso, estamos com muita raiva e tristeza. Porém, é “bonito” ver a reação de tantos torcedores, jornalistas, ex-jogadores, jogadores, técnicos e de tantas outras pessoas inconformadas com isso. Mostra o quanto Eli Manning é amado e admirado dentro e fora dos campos. Confira algumas delas:

I'm absolutely speechless. I've watched every game & have sat through this rough @Giants season & this what you do to a man who has lead this team for 210 straight games

Talked to one of Eli Manning’s former NFL coaches today. He told me the starting streak means the world to Manning, and that he feels answering the bell every week is the ultimate accomplishment in the NFL.

I'm a big admirer of Eli Manning. He's all about competing hard and being a professional. Keep your head up- you are a true New Yorker.

Tom Coughlin on @1010XL asked about Eli Manning: "Surprised is not the word. My sentiments are totally with Eli Manning. … He's a class act, a two-time Super Bowl champ, one of the finest, most humble men in that locker room. … I was very upset about when I heard that."

Eli deserves much better than that. Much better. Class person, class player. That’s absurd

O time não demite um treinador no meio da temporada porque "não é padrão da franquia", mas colocar um Franchise QB no banco de reserva no meio da temporada pode, né? Ridículo. Triste. Desrespeitoso. 😡

Damn! Bench Eli? Man showed up every week for 14 years.

O que o Giants fez hoje é inacreditável, talvez a pior decisão que o time tomou no século. Absolutamente vergonhoso. https://t.co/TrgQyG08Mh

The @Giants benching Eli Manning for Geno Smith is almost as crazy as not running the ball on the 1 with a Super Bowl in the line 🤔🤔

Are you fucking kidding me? Show me a guy with more heart and guts than Eli and I’ll call you a long tongue liar.
